2020 Thunder Valley Motocross | Race Highlights
Lakewood, Colorado, played host to the penultimate round of the Lucas Oil National Championship Motocross Series this weekend, and the Thunder Valley MX track proved to be even more challenging this year with a hard-packed surface and the typical massive ruts that form on the mountainside course. In the 250 class, Monster Energy/Star Racing/Yamaha’s Justin Cooper carried his momentum from last weekend’s runner-up finish at WW Ranch in Florida and earned is first 250 National win of the year with 2-1 moto scores. His teammate and championship point leader, Dylan Ferrandis, came home second overall and added to his lead over GEICO Honda’s Jeremy Martin, who was third.
In the 450 division, Eli Tomac rose to the occasion in front of his home-state fans and earned the win with 3-1 finishes on his Monster Energy Kawasaki KX450. His teammate Adam Cianciarulo lost the tiebreaker with his 1-3 showing for second overall, while points leader Zach Osborne finished third and enters the series finale with a 24-point lead.
